Family Resources provides vital services to children, youth and families in St. Petersburg and surrounding areas — including Clearwater and Bradenton. Our goal is to support the family as a whole and keep kids, teens, and parents together.
Family Resources offers counseling services, shelter and transitional living programs, and an array of community-based programs that assist youth in dealing with family issues, peer pressures, and other social challenges. Our services offer hope while providing the education, skill building and therapeutic support that gives youth and families the tools necessary to resolve conflicts and experience successful, permanent relationships.
Our mission is to inspire well-being and success in the lives of vulnerable children, youth and families through responsive quality programs and safe places. We are guided by our vision that every child should be safe, that every troubled teen deserves help and that every family torn apart in crisis be given the opportunity to mend.
Family Resources Inc. COA Accreditation
Family Resources Inc. is accredited by the Council on Accreditation. COA accreditation is an objective and reliable verification that organizations and programs qualify for confidence and support of their stakeholders.
The COA accreditation process involves a detailed review and analysis of an organization or program’s administrative functions and service delivery practices. All are measured against international standards of best practice.
These standards emphasize services that are accessible, appropriate, based in the community, coordinated, culturally competent, evidence-based, individualized, outcomes-oriented, provided by a skilled and supported workforce, respectful of individual rights, strengths-based, supportive of partnership, child and family focused, treated all people with dignity, involve family and provider collaboration, and address child outcomes.
As such, consumers, board members, funders, regulators and staff can have confidence in the credibility, integrity and achievement of the organization or program.
To achieve COA accreditation, an organization or program first provides written evidence of compliance with the applicable standards. Thereafter, a group of specially trained volunteer Site Reviewers confirms adherence to these standards during a series of on-site interviews with the organization’s trustees, staff and clients. Based on their findings, COA’s Pre-Commission Review Committee or Accreditation Commission then determines whether and organization or program has successfully met the criteria for accreditation.
